3D Printed Adapter

The task of this project was to design an adapter that will be manufactured via 3D printing and possibly injection molding in the future. The product is a smartphone adapter for microscopes, you simply fit the phone on one end and on the other end you fit the microscope.

However, the challenge of this project was to make it possible to fit different smartphones and microscopes of different sizes.

Front view – to attach the phone we use a circular magnet and to adjust to the microscope diameter we use the screw on the top
Back view – we have two tightening knobs and a slider
Close up on the mechanism – we also have soft padding for the microscope

3D printed prototype, however as it seems the customer used low-res printer for this prototype, a better printer would yield better results
